The combination of a topping Brayton (gas turbine) cycle with an existing Rankine (boiler-steam turbine) cycle for improved overall cycle heat rate has been very successful in the Netherlands.

In the years 1985–1989 10 gas-fired power plants with a capacity of nearly 4000 MW were substantially modernized by adding a gas turbine topping cycle.

In all these cases the Hot Wind box repowering or Windbox repowering with a supplementary boiler option was chosen.

Besides the improvement of the heat rate it was remarkable that a NOx-emission reduction was achieved between 50 and 85%.

So far more than 500,000 hours experience with hot windbox is available.

If NOx-reduction becomes very important windbox repowering is the best option to modernize power plants.
